Twitter points out the misogyny in Kanye's rant at Wiz Khalifa
January 27, 2016 at 11:20 am
Kanye West took to Twitter to attack Wiz Khalifa in response to what he thought was a jab at the change in his album title. While he spewed opinions riddled in misogyny and stroking his own ego, the twitterverse watched in horror as Kanye basically dragged himself into a rabbit hole of epic proportions.
Ye: Don’t put my wife’s name in your bio Wiz: That’s a weed. Ye: AMBER ROSE IS A HOE That is literally what just happened

Whether this is just a poor moral marketing strategy or another moment of Kanye Kanye-ing, it didn’t take long for the Internet to convene and begin handing out clapbacks worthy of several think pieces.
This Kanye rant is case study on the frailty of masculinity

What happened between wiz and kanye is basically like when someone tweets something random & you think it’s a subtweet about you.

NOBODY would have brought up Kim had Kanye not came for the mother of that man’s child and called his child a mistake. Don’t.

I don’t think either of them are “hoes,” but he acts like he married Betty Shabazz https://t.co/KfGMuYVRsC

There should be a mental health assessment before registering for Twitter because the way Kanye is set up…

Kanye doesn’t regret losing Amber. He resents her continued success without him. So she’ll always be on his mind.

Can someone do a think piece on how creepy and obsessive it is for Kanye to claim his ex’s child as his own during a Twitter tantrum

Album titles, pants, tweets, the bodies of other human beings. What WON’T straight men fight over? LOL.

Kanye is extremely rich, famous, and talented, but he’s also just like any other man forever pining over a woman who dumped him years ago

Kanye continues to need someone to love him enough to stop him.

@Karnythia I read that as slap him. Same difference.

Oh Kanye. Let’s hope that next time you come for anyone, you clarify exactly what it is you’re mad about because based upon what you’ve said, it looks like all that anger is harboring something greater.
